DJ ND: Winning the world finals last year didn’t really stop you. You came back for more…
- Yes. Due to some circumstances, I had a little bit of time this summer to work on a new show. I told myself, let’s take 10 days to create as much cool stuff as possible, and if I think it’s worth it, l’ll defend the title… I took the challenge and after 10 days my 6 minutes was as good as ready. And so I decided to defend the title.
Of course, it was not an easy decision. Turntablists are very critical towards each other. I know that I took the risk of being criticized, especially if I didn’t take the title again. But I don’t fear critics, as long as the feedback is constructive. I knew that with the set I put together, I had a chance to win. So I just went for it.
I had some technical issues with the turntables and I didn’t really feel comfortable during my set. But still, I did what I came for and that’s the most important for me.
